Cath Maige Tuireadh (The Second Battle of Mag Tuiread)

Lugh joins the Tuatha de Danaan and is so good at everything that he earns the nickname of "Samildanach," or "many-gifted." His friends don't want to let him fight because he was so important to them, but Lugh kills his grandfather. That guy just happened to be his enemy, the king of the Fomorians—Balor.

Baile in Scáil: The Phantom's Frenzy

Lugh appears to a king, Conn, and a druid as the most beautiful man alive. He tells them about Conn's own rule and all the future kings and their reigns. He's pretty smart, right?
